- ... Armyworm Mythimna separata larvae show changes in cuticle darkening depending on population densities and are roughly categorized into two phenotypes, a pale brown solitary type and black-colored gregarious type. Although the color difference in both larval types is apparent, it remains ambiguous whether any change in physiological traits accompanies the cuticle darkening. To answer this query, we ...

- ... Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, commonly known as Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), transmits the bacterium Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas), one of the causative agents of Huanglongbing (HLB) to citrus trees. Within ACP populations, three adult abdominal color polymorphisms: gray/brown, blue/green, and orange/yellow have been described. Despite the economic importance of this insect, the molecular m ...
